Russell has toured extensively in the US as a founding member of the New Jersey based The Brummy Brothers, appearing at the Gathering of the Vibes, Catskill Chill, Philadelphia Folk Festival, Brooklyn Bowl, Nectar's, and World Cafe Live, opening for Melvin Seals and JGB, Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams, and Leftover Salmon, to name a few.
